Stevia Lemon Panna Cotta | SweetLeaf®

Panna cotta is a traditional Italian dessert usually made with cream, eggs, and honey. It’s been given a healthier makeover using SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Lemon Drop Sweet Drops. It has all the traditional flavor, minus the sugar and high calories. Enjoy guilt-free today!



In a saucepan, stir gelatin into heavy cream and set aside for 1 minute. Sprinkle lemon zest over gelatin and cream mixture. Add lemon juice and turn heat on low continually stirring mixture until gelatin is completely dissolved and everything is combined well. Whisk the yogurt and SweetLeaf® Liquid Stevia Lemon Drop Sweet Drops into the pan and stir until incorporated.

Grease 4 ramekins and pour mixture into each evenly. Cover and refrigerate at least 5 hours or until set. You can serve them in their cups or remove onto a plate and top with fresh lemon zest and a few lemon slices to garnish.

    Is a packet of gelatin equal to 1 Tbsp? 2 Tbsp? I buy my gelatin in bulk, this would be helpful!

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      Hi @heather_horst:disqus, great question! One packet of gelatin is equal to about 1/4oz of stevia – or about 2 1/4 to 2 1/2 teaspoons. We hope this helps!

    If I want to lower the fat content in the lemon panna cotta can I replace some of the heavy cream with reduced fat milk? Or could you make a recommendation?

    I want to make this dessert this weekend. I can’t find the lemon drop sweet leaf in Nashville. Can I use the standard sweet leaf drops and add lemon extract? If so how much? 1/2 tsp?

    • SweetLeaf Stevia

      Hi Denise, we suggest you use the indicated amount of SteviaClear Sweet Drops, and then use that same amount, 1 tsp., of lemon extract since it does not contain sugar at all.
